Staging

If you want potential buyers to choose your property over that of the competition, home staging is the way to go. Staging is the act of making a home look visually appealing to buyers. It can and will make your house stand out from the crowd.

A stronger perceived value often translates into a higher selling price. In a survey, real estate Web site HomeGain found that home staging resulted, on average, in a $1,780 price increase or a 586 percent return on investment.

Not only can staging help seal the deal when a potential buyer is inquiring about a home, but it can also get that buyer to visit the home in the first place. Think about this..twenty years ago, people would drive by properties, have to read the paper and read ads to get info on properties. TODAY..more than 90 percent of home buyers are looking on the Internet before they even give a Realtor a call. So if you don't have amazing pictures of that property, people move that property to the "doesn't make the cut" list.

With social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter being used to post pictures of properties, staging takes on a new urgency as a home's presentation has a lot more at stake and its ability to sell can often hinge on a simple photograph.

A NOTE FROM EVA.....

As part of my Real Estate services to you, I have a Stager on staff to help us get your home in tip-top shape. If interested in her services, give me a call and we can set up an appointment for her to come visit your home.

Also, because photos of your home are extremely important, I only work with a professional photographer. You will see on "my listings" page that photos taken of my homes interiors and exteriors are of professional quality and will give the potential home buyer the very best viewing of your home even before they step in the door!
